Increased interest in sustainable resource management has resulted in the adoption of a diverse array of water recycling and reuse techniques that maximize valuable water supplies to meet the challenging water demands of the 21st century. This presentation will highlight how communities, including San Francisco and Denver, are incorporating onsite non-potable water systems to diversify their water supply portfolios and transform the way water is managed in buildings.
Paula Kehoe, the Director of Water Resources at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, will present on San Francisco’s innovative Non-potable Water Program. Established in 2012, San Francisco’s Non-potable Water Program allows for the collection, treatment, and use of alternate water sources for non-potable uses in buildings, and provides a streamlined permitting program for onsite water systems. In addition, she will present on the recent work of the National Blue Ribbon Commission for Onsite Non-potable Water Systems, a group of public utilities and health agencies building consensus on water quality standards and permitting approaches, to help municipalities build local permitting programs for onsite water systems.
Brian Good, Chief Administrative Officer of Denver Water, will present on upcoming regulatory changes and remaining challenges for onsite water recycling in Colorado. He will also present on two of Denver Water’s projects that are moving forward with design and construction guided by a One Water approach to water management.
